Single Phase Single Pump Rain/Mains Pump Controller

The unique MATelec Rain/Mains Single Pump Controller is designed to provide a continuous supply of water for a variety of uses, whilst prioritising and maximising the use of rainwater. The system comprises of a controller, a pulse latching solenoid valve and float switches. The controller not only monitors the level of stored rainwater and switches the valve accordingly but controls a single or three phase pump in a pressure pumping system.

  • Rainwater use - If rainwater becomes available, the controller pulse closes the mains water valve and the pressure switch will control the pump.
  • Mains water use - In the event of rainwater depletion, pump fault or power failure, the controller shuts off the pump and pulses the valve open for mains water use
  • IP56 rated, powder coated mild steel enclosure with inner door and removable gland plate
  • Pad-lockable mains power isolator switch
  • Circuit breaker protected low voltage control and input circuitry
  • Contactor and thermal overload protection of pump
  • Din rail mounted terminal connections
Control & interface
  • Rain/mains keypad interface:
    • Indicator lights for mains and tank water use, system fault
    • System test/reset button for checking pump and valve function, resetting faults
  • Rain/mains PCB control module

Fault Protection

  • Pump overload protection - Shuts down pump on overload.
